Medical Imaging Assistant

WHAT IS A MEDICAL IMAGING ASSISTANT?

Medical Imaging Assistants aid the work of X-ray technologists, contributing to the examination and diagnosis process. They perform technical as well as clerical duties, contributing to the work of the medical team. They communicate with patients, while serving as facilitators and assisting with diagnostic exams using various radiology modalities.

It will be your job to check-in patients, prepare and educate patients for their medical imaging examination, assist with positioning, procedures, and transporting patients among other tasks. Other responsibilities may include but not limited to; maintaining patient information in compliance with HIPAA guidelines, scheduling exams, and ensuring polices and procedures of the organization are properly adhered to. Medical Imaging Assistants make for the best radiologic technologists!
